Alberton Gorge Full Day Raft Trips are offered April – October weather permitting. The peak season is July and August! Our shop is located 30 minutes west of Missoula or two hours from Coeur d’Alene.
White water rafting trips are a great way to bond and have the time of your life! Our customers often say that this trip is one of the best they’ve ever been on. It’s designation is world class given the diversity of watershed, abundance of wildlife and thrilling family friendly rapids. This 12 mile raft trip provides 15 rapids and breath taking scenery down the Alberton Gorge canyon on the Clark Fork River. The day will start at 10am, where you will meet at the Adventure Missoula shop located in Cyr, Montana (exit 70 off of I-90). Your friendly guides who will be taking you whitewater rafting will greet you with the adequate gear needed for the raft trip. We provide everything you will need free of charge.
Once you are outfitted, you will take the 3 minute walk down to the river put in and the float trip will begin! The river will greet you with class I and II rapids. Here you will practice paddle strokes, laugh with peers, and look upon the beautiful wildlife that frequent the Upper Gorge which includes a group of large eagles. When the purple cliffs come into vision, you will be entering the Gorge, and the whitewater will turn into class III rapids! As far as whitewater rafting trips go, this stretch is the most exciting in Montana. Better than in Glacier Park because of the volume of water. The river passes under triple bridges and you will start to approach our favorite rapid: Tumbleweed! Make sure to paddle hard and smile large as you go through this rapid. At the end of the raft trip you will be able to purchase pictures of your whitewater rafting experience.
After Tumbleweed, there will be an opportunity to cliff jump right above another one of our favorite rapids, Fang! Once you whitewater raft through Fang, you will pull over and enjoy a locally grown lunch next to the beautiful Fish Creek on a sandy beach. While your guides prepare lunch, you can swim in the crystal clear water of Fish Creek.
When lunch comes to an end, we pack up the boats and head into the Lower Alberton Gorge. This holds the opportunity to take in the beautiful scenery around you, float through some whitewater rapids, and play games on the raft! The raft trip comes to an end at Tarkio. When we reach the takeout the guides will take you back to the Adventure Missoula shop, and your trip with Adventure Missoula will come to a close!
